of america's biggest cities and it's about to come ashore. conditions are getting worse by the hour. at least 23 states are now under warnings or advisories because of the storm's winds. damage could hit $10 billion or even a lot more. some states could see their worst flooding in a century. and in the appalachian mountains, they're expecting blizzard conditions. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> hurricane sandy is a monster storm, even though its center is still out to sea. tropical storm and hurricane force winds extend, get this now, for 1,000 miles. right now, damaging winds are blowing from southern new england across long island, new jersey, delaware and virginia. we have the full resources of cnn deployed on the story including crews up and down the atlantic coast as well as in cities that aren't used to this kind of a disaster. here's what the storm looked like this afternoon when the international space station flew over. you can clearly see the eye of the storm. right now, the center is closing in on southern new jersey. let's begin our coverage with our meteorol
last night in red cross operated shelters. this may be the worst storm ever to hit new york city. one of the biggest challenges is where the massive subway system is shut down, tunnels and stations are filled with high water. no idea when the trains will be running again. this is a difficult situation. take a look at laguardia airport. the runways are submerged and levels were so high they reached the jet lanes where people usually walk on to the planes. an entire neighborhood is destroyed by fire. at least 80 homes burned to the ground in the new york burro of queens. this is an awful image. people are going through hell right now. tell us about it. >> you know, they really are. about 80 homes, the fire official telling us it could be as many as 110. this is a pile of twisted plastic. the irony? these are sandbags. people expected this area to flood. what they didn't expect was the fire. when one house caught fire, the homes are so close together that the wind just swept that which is about 30 houses that way. the tires completely melted off. just the snapshot of the devastation. we
you so much. dramatic new developing stories and another major new york city hospital, our own dr. sanjay gupta standing by with the very latest. the drama continues throughout new york and new jersey. rescuers right now going house to house. they are still freeing people who've been trapped for nearly two days. and very soon now we'll be bringing you in new video of president obama's dramatic helicopter tour of the devastation along the jersey shore. with the new jersey republican governor chris christie right at his side. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> there have been many, many major new developments all throughout the day. we want to bring you the latest developments right now. and we're going to begin with the big picture. the storm that started as hurricane sandy now being blamed for a total of 118 deaths. 68 of them in the caribbean and now 50 of them in the united states. the state with the highest death toll, new york state. 26 people in new york state have died. new york city struggling to try to get back to normal. as you see here, subway stations
save benghazi but to take out gadhafi's tanks gathering around the city of benghazi in libya, they were worried if an american face was on that operation, if it was too much seen as america leading another war in the middle east, that they might not pass that resolution in the united nations security council. and so the idea was they needed to put some of the arab and other countries out in front and that the obama administration needed to lead from behind in passing that united nations resolution. so that was the context. i always thought, frankly, it was simply a matter of strategy, the phrase to me was always a little bit more machiavellian rather than announcing that they weren't going to take a leadership role in the world. of course, politically it's not something you would necessarily brand your foreign policy with. and republicans have really seized on it almost immediately and every republican has used it to slam obama ever since. but i hasten to add the specific context is very different than what most republicans describe. >> the article was an excellent article. i remember i
an apparent terrorist plot in new york city. it's a bomb plot. and the suspect is in custody, will later be in court today. let's go straight to cnn's national correspondent susan candiotti, she's joining us from new york. what do we know, susan? >> hi, wolf. we know that this alleged plot had been underway for quite some time. an undercover sting operation being conducted by the fbi and the nypd to foil a planned plot to blow up the federal reserve bank here in lower manhattan. it's very close to wall street. and apparently it all went down, culminated in the alleged plot that went down today and that's when this man was arrested. he is only 21 years old. and apparently he was planning to take and detonate a 1,000-pound bomb, what he thought was a bomb, but it was inert, no member of the public was in danger because the feds were all over this, they say, as they were putting this operation together they say at the request of this suspect. they say it was all his idea. only 21 years old. his name is quasi muhammad renswa. he came to the united states in january of this year, a bangladesh
the federal reserve bank in new york city say he was set up. authorities say the man's goal was simply and i'm quoting these authorities now "to destroy america." his arrest came after an fbi sting operation. cnn's national correspondent susan candiotti is joining us from new york with more. susan, you shared most of the details yesterday, but you're learning more. >> reporter: that's right. we're getting two entirely different views of who this man is. not surprisingly prosecutors say he was a man bent on doing the most damage he could to america while his family says that authorities have it all wrong. who's the real quazi nafis? >> from the complaints, it's alleged that his attempt was to launch a devastating attack here in new york city to destroy a building, to kill men, women and children. >> reporter: his family in bangladesh paints a completely different picture. it's simply not possible, his sister says, that he did this. we think it's impossible that it was him and that he's being made a victim here. maybe he's being set up by somebody. using a valid student visa, the 21-year-old w

with it. but the president flew in to colorado too late to adapt to the mile high city. look, his own campaign team was trying to say the president didn't want to be too combative but he wasn't feisty enough. the question here is this though, we're in an election where we know governor romney has the republican vote, the president has the hard core democratic vote. governor romney needed to energize his base. he did that last night. will this have an impact on swing voters? one thing democrats are saying today in the focus groups and dial groups and polling last night looking at swing voters they say there was not a noticeable shift. maybe a few said governor romney was impressive, but they didn't see a big flood toward governor romney. wolf, make no question about this the president went into this debate with a little wind on his back, governor romney comes out having taken that wind away. >> quickly, john, a lot of democrats said to me today they're really worried that the president's lackluster performance last night may have hurt down ticket candidate, senate democrats for example
